The sharpshooter is ranked 13th in the nation in field goal percent, hitting 61 percent of his shots.
Last time against the Hilltoppers
The last time these two teams met Alex Falk poured in a career-high 32 points and as the No. 3-ranked Hilltoppers’ won 89-76 at the ASRC. Williams paced Wesleyan with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
Should WLU keep an eye our for them?
Yes. Wesleyan can be a dangerous team and score a lot of points in a hurry. The Hilltoppers did a good job of keeping McElroy in check in the last metting but let Williams burn them for 21 points. If the defense can do a good job with the full court press, the offense should be able to outscore the Bobcats.
